    Video: No Video

    DirectInput Error

    Couldn't create input device

    The Rainbow Six message says doesn't detect video, but DxDiag shows it in there, could someone assist in fixing the problem? My ATI drivers are up to date, and I have DirectX 9.0c. Thank you.

    -I had also tried running Ventrilo and it gave me the message: Failed to create DirectInput object for monitoring press-to-talk.

    -And I have also gotten the following error from DxDiag: Error, Problem getting input info, result code 0x80004005 (Generic Failure)

    The problem got fixed, I guess. I just closed the following process and it seemed to be working just fine.


    But when I restarted, the program was still there, but the problem with the Direct Input wasn't, so I'm wondering if that was a coincidence or not.
